Have you been able to load a stable round in 140 or 150 gr. that consistently broke 3200fps while keeping a consistent p.o.i.?
I can het a 140 up there with good accuracy, 150 gets a harder. Runs about 3100 to 3150. I have gotten there with IMR 7828 with good accuracy. Can remember my load weight. I'm not at home.it does fill the case though and is at max pressure.

Re: .270 WSM All-purpose load

Has anybody experimented with Burger .130 grain hunting bullets in the .270 WSM ? I'm wanting a good long range bullet that kills good.

The Bergers have to be single fed in my rifle, so I have not used them for hunting purposes - I like to have a follow-up shot ready if needed (or if a herd of pigs comes out).

I shot a decent buck with a Berger 130 in 270 WSM, It worked pretty well but it was only 303 yards.

I bought some of the Hybrid classic Hunter Bergers that are out now and am going to try developing a load with those and hunt this fall with them.

My 270 wsm likes 150 Nosler BT over 70.3 Magnum with a cci-200 and Winny brass. 3118 fps. Deer have been impressed.

My target load is 150 SGK over 62 H 4831. Sub 1/2 moa at 100 yds.

Enjoy

My GO TO gun has been a Sako A7 Stainless in 270WSM for quite a few years now. I have killed lots of critters with it from deer to elk to moose to bears. Everything with the same load 16 yard Elk right out to 500 yard moose

130 TTSX @ 3250 fps with 62.5 gr IMR 4350, Federal 210 primer.
